Do you feel guilty for taking time for yourself?
Here are 3 SIMPLE ways to make yourself a priority today:
〰️Say no to someone or something.
We all have a bit of a people pleaser within us 🤷🏻♀️ Once you get in the habit of saying no (when it doesn’t feel right and you’re not happy) you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
〰️Practice self-care in intervals.
Taking time for self-care and rituals doesn’t have to be done all in one go. During the day, try to find 10-15 minute blocks to do something you enjoy.
〰️Choose one thing each day that you can take off of your to-do list.
(make sure you write it down and then cross it off once it’s done, so much more satisfying)🤣

The colosseum! It’s crazy how people enjoyed watching horrific things happen to other humans, how could they detach themselves from the reality of the situation and feel no empathy? Humans can be strange beings!
It was a great time at Disney with the fam today! I think I had the most fun! Haha! My favorite rides at Magic Kingdom were, Snow White and Small World—two extremes, I know!
We ended up closing the park and the girls fell asleep almost instantly upon entering the car. I look forward to more Disney adventures! Feel free to check out “Disney” in my Highlights for more on our visit 🤩
What do you love the most about Disney?
It’s nice to be nice.
It’s as simple as that.
With Hustle & Heart,
afternoon @ the book shop
One of the first few shots I made of sweet Judah. These simple shots are often my favorite. No frills, just beautiful, perfect little babes. ⠀
We’ve been prepping for all the brand photo shoots and production happening in March! Words can’t describe how excited I was when I hit the send button for the 4 designs we completed today. 🙃
While I’m working on brand shoots here in the Bay, Terrie is getting ready for the workshops lined up this month in Taiwan.
Now, we want to share more about branding through workshops, especially those who are not local, but I need your help. 🙏🏻
I want to make sure these workshops are as helpful as possible, and I would love to know what you guys want to know. 💁🏻♀️
Is it finding your brand colors? Nailing your brand style? Having a Instagram strategy that works? Creating more ideas for your social media images? Anything else on your mind?
Here’s one we created for @becaliabotanicals
with a delicate, elegant, and modern brand style.
I used to hide behind the camera a lot , until my experience of pregnancy where I realised I was here to connect , to show all of me .
I was playing a big game of “push and pull” showing up sometimes with my business and then hiding away for days because I needed a “break” , stuck in my head of questioning “ am I enough, am I doing enough “
I was looking outside of myself so much to create a business that was me , I was missing the point !
I wanted to make an impact , but I was sacrificing what I truly desired!
Connection - TO ME , my soul ( or what ever you want to call it)
There was still fragments of me .Creating from a place of “what do the people want / need” how can I be of service to them .
But when I am really in tune and present with my connection to self , there is no questioning / wondering / doubting / trying to figure it out .
My connection to self is my service
Connection needs slowing down , it needs deep listening , it needs trust , it needs feeling , it needs your present breath.
We hear a lot about balance and wanting balance in our lives ( I’ve stopped using that phrase now )... true connection knows that balance is bullshit because we are balance , that is not something that is outside of ourselves , it is who we are .
We can choose balance in any moment.
Connection does not need to create balance . Connection is felt and then balance comes naturally, it flows out in to all areas of life .
So if anyone is intrigued about what my business actual is ... it’s connection , that is all , i connect with myself and then people reach out to me and I connect through the knowing that what I create is enough , because it is me - whole heartedly , it is simple , it is easeful , it is beautiful.
When I am in connection mode I do not need to try to sell anything or be anything. What I create and share does that for itself , I take a step back from that , I am not attached to that .
Once I have created and shared it , it takes a life of its own , perceived and received by another how ever they wish to . .
Happy Creating Loves

With God’s love I am #fearless
. I push myself to achieve, I push myself to be the best I can I be. I have faith in His plan and He has faith in me. But God’s will is not for me to live my life alone, as He has surrounded me by amazing people. #People
who inspire me every single day. People I will never take for granted, for I am truly #blessed
Who are you blessed to have in your life? “Two people are better than one because together they have a good reward for their hard work. If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10). #Christ #trustGod #inspirationalquotes #wordsilove #motivationquotes #Jesus #entrepeneur #creativeentrepeneur #advice
It’s so easy to tell yourself the story that you’re not ready to take those big, scary leaps in your business. But the truth is, so often you master these actions by doing the mindset work necessary to lean into them when they STILL feel uncomfortable. Today I’m diving into how to start before you feel 100% ready and why that will always yield MORE results in your life and business, faster, than waiting for a magical moment of readiness.⠀
I chat about: ⠀
✨What skiing has taught me about starting before you’re ready and how it’s totally changed my mindset around actions that feel scary (and how you can translate this same mindset shift to your biz!)⠀
✨How waiting until you feel 100% ready will always leave you feeling further behind than if you started taking action BEFORE you felt comfortable (because let’s be real, that magical moment of readiness may never arrive!)⠀
✨My number one mindset hack for getting to the root of WHY you may not feel ready for those big, uncomfortable steps in your business so that you can move past them sooner and start seeing more money in the bank, like yesterday⠀
✨How to “tip the scale” toward feeling ready and determine the RIGHT action to take EVEN IF you aren’t quite there yet so you can start hitting those goals big number goals with more confidence and ease⠀
✨My biggest secrets to leaning into the discomfort in your business so that you can start getting more visible and seeing bigger, better, and different results because of it⠀
Tune in on Apple Podcasts via the link in profile or at amandadennelly.com/onesimpleshift and tell me, what’s one thing in business that you started before you felt 100% ready and saw big results because of it?
I have to say that completing a brand is hands down one of my favorite parts of a logo design. Here are a few design ideas I had for a clients sub logo - want to take a guess on which one she picked?
Want to hear more about why (but also, how!) I started this business? My formal education in cosmetics formulation is from @formulabotanica
~ they interviewed me in November about the launch of my brand ~ Click the link in our profile to give it a listen!
I talk about why I decided to pursue a "real" education in something I already knew a lot about, how and why I chose to name the line The Sunday Standard, and how relying on your community can be your #1
resource when starting a business. You may even get a glimpse into what's to come for our product line in 2019!
Fun fact about the interview: I didn't know it was going to be LIVE VIDEO RECORDED until I was on the phone with Kelly, and as they're located in the UK it was quite early here in the US ~ I was still wearing my pajamas, not wearing a stitch of makeup, and had total bed-head. Kelly was nice enough to grant me 5 minutes to pull myself together for the camera ~ after all, the internet is forever, people!
All to say that the only constant when it comes to running your own business is that things rarely (never?) go as planned ~ you have to be flexible, and in the words of Tim Gunn, willing to MAKE IT WORK!
Give me a 🙌🏻 in the comments if you've ever thought about starting your own business! I’d love to hear more about it too, of course!

Tonight's the night!!! SOSOSO very excited to Host the very first Dinner for 8 in my new home! It’s the @_thedinnerpartyproject_
concept that started it all. Super intimate. Start with a cocktail. 4 Courses. Actual conversation. Wine with dinner. And Credo Coffee to wrap up the night. I was thrilled to create an environment at @_thewelcomehouse_
that would foster connections. The idea is to sit down as strangers and maybe leave as friends. Hope you join us sometime! Drop us a line if you like to come 👉🏼 email@example.com

I took down all the Valentine's Day decor over the weekend and have been slowly adding Spring decor, starting with these Dollar Store flowers (swipe for the video).
The stems are from @dollartree
and the pots are from @target
They add some color to my tiered tray in our kitchen.
We all desire the feeling of strength and true grounded power. The kind of strength that resonates deep in your soul and makes you feel strong in your being.
This is the kind of strength that gets us through our current challenges and past traumas. When we can stay the course without giving up, we will make it through anything and experience our greatness.
When we are misaligned with our power we don't have that deep sense of peace and fulfillment that comes with inner strength and that lets you know that you ARE on the right path.
Remember that life is a journey and your soul desires the transformation that happens for you along the way. It's not about getting it right or even getting there... it's much more about what you learn and who you become.

HABLEMOS DE COLORES Y MACARRONES 🎨😌
Los colores son importantes dentro de tu proyecto, estos definen quien es tu marca.
Instagram permite que dejemos de ser cuadrados con los colores de las marcas, ya que puedes jugar hasta con el color dentro de tus imágenes.
Para adentrarnos más, te dire todo con macarrones ¿Por qué? No sé 🤷🏻♀️ Simplemente creo que son ricos y aquí el macarrón será tu marca ☝🏼😌
🎨¿Por qué son importantes los colores y por qué deben combinar con tu macarrón?
Bueno, más del 80% del reconocimiento efectivo de tu macarrón tiene que ver con el color. El color puede hacer que tú mensaje llegue claro o no.
Te definen y ayudan a establecer la forma en que tu audiencia interactúa con tu macarrón. -
🎨¿Y cómo elegimos nuestros colores? OJO, te decía que Instagram es una cosa y la vida real otra. Está red social te permite jugar con paletas de color, por bloques de meses, semanas o días, de acuerdo a lo que vayas a comunicar, es decir, puedes usar el color de tu macarrón + todas las paletas de color que combinen.
👉🏼Te recomiendo usar la regla de los 3 colores, nada puede salir mal, si la usas. Se trata de elegir un color primario + 2 complementarios.
🎨Por último ¿Qué debes de tomar en cuenta al elegir el color para tu macarrón? Pregúntate:
>¿La marca ya tiene un color del cual basarte? Si es así, parte de ahí.
>¿Qué mensaje se desarrollará en Instagram? Para elegir el color complementario.
>¿Cuál será el tono del mensaje? Para armar la paleta completa de color. -
Ahh y evita:
> Usar colores flúor (sólo si sabes cómo usarlos). Porque dañarán las retinas de tu audiencia 🤣
>Que los colores compitan entre sí.
>Elegir más de 3 a 5 colores.
Recuerda que el color es tu amigo y te ayudará a que tu macarrón se vea más antojable a tu audiencia ☝🏼😌 -
